Congratulations!  You've reached the website of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association, with churches in 31 cities of southern Los Angeles County.  Welcome!  We exist to Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip the leadership of local churches, empowering them to make disciples and launch new churches and ministries.  We are here to empower our pastors and church leaders to run their RACE--Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip!


SIG Alert!

40 Weekdays of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."  

Day 15 – Matthew 18.19-20: Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.

  1. Pray that not only will we understand the importance and power of secret and solitary prayer, but also the importance and power of public and united prayer.
  2. Pray for Rev. Sung Lee, seaport chaplain at Long Beach Seaport, and his wife Myung and family, the Pacific Seafarer Church he pastors, the other chaplains he has trained, and the ship shepherds he has trained, as they minister to the crew members of tankers, freight, car transports, and bulk ships that come into the seaport.  Pray for chaplains to reach the Los Angeles Seaport.
  3. Pray for the Rhema Word Bible Church, their pastor Rev. Trevor Johnson, his wife Loretta, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Lynwood, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray for courage and God’s protection as we spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

I rejected the church for a time because I found so little grace there. I returned because I found grace nowhere else.  —Philip Yancey

If a person has grasped the meaning of God’s grace in his heart, he will do justice. If he doesn’t live justly, then he may say with his lips that he is grateful for God’s grace, but in his heart he is far from him. If he doesn’t care about the poor, it reveals that at best he doesn’t understand the grace he has experienced, and at worst he has not really encountered the saving mercy of God. Grace should make you just.  —Timothy Keller

We must remember that the goal of prayer is the ear of God. Unless that is gained, the prayer has utterly failed. The uttering of it may have kindled devotional feeling in our minds, the hearing of it may have comforted and strengthened the hearts of those with whom we have prayed, but if the prayer has not gained the heart of God, it has failed in its essential purpose.  —Charles Spurgeon

I don’t want the world to define God of me.  I want the Holy Spirit to reveal God to me.  —A. W. Tozer

Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what.  If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.  --Catherine M. Wallace

We cannot infer from prosperity that God is pleased with us, nor can we infer from adversity that he is displeased with us. —Wilson Benton

Do or do not. There is no try.  —Yoda

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.  —Napoleon Hill

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.  —Mark Twain

In the south one of biggest mission fields is nominal Christianity (which isn't Christian). Biggest obstacle to reaching? Idol of family.  —Dean Inserra

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.  —Albert Einstein

If we found on Mars what we find in the womb, there would be no doubt life was discovered. —Garrett Kell

A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.  —Bob Dylan

If you want to thank a soldier, be the kind of American worth fighting for.  —Unknown

Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world. A veteran does not have that problem.  —Ronald Reagan

We struggle with the complexities and avoid the simplicities.  --Norman Vincent Peale

You’re only as good as the people you hire.  --Ray Kroc

Example is not the main thing influencing others.  It is the only thing.  --Albert Schweitzer
